Close call

Nearly slipped on my resolution to post every day. My boss stayed late, and my current PC is completely visible from hers, and then I was finally reading the new journals of people that I know (mr_snips, you'll find the odd comment on 2 month old posts. Damn, it's good to have the internet back. (I hasten to add that those two sentences are pretty much unrelated.)). So, I was just thinking "I'll go back to Jo's and post from there", when I decided that as I blatantly wouldn't I'd better stay on a bit later. And what a benefit to the world that I did, for I now present to you:

10 similarities between DJing and sex.
  1. Both require a certain amount of dexterity.

  2. You need more than working equipment to do either, but you do need working equipment.

  3. With both, it helps if you think a few moves ahead.

  4. Both get much trickier when one is drunk.

  5. I can do either one for quite some time without getting bored.

  6. Neither is likely to earn me more than beer money.

  7. Neither is likely to make the transition from a hobby to a career.

  8. Both have earned me the appreciation of a small but select group of discerning people.

  9. Neither could adequately be replaced by a mix CD, unless it was a really good mix CD.

  10. All inspired by tinyjo's comment that:
  11. My expression is apparently similar when doing either.


Make of that what you will...

Also, an article which will interest those of you interested in Radiohead, drawing, teaching or children (which I think covers most of y'all (those that I know in meat-space, anyway)) courtesy of autodidactic, to whom mad props.

Awesome article
Me I like - honest madness that is, and of the best kind. Eerie how well their drawing style and interpretation models the professional animation of 'Paranoid Android' and other music vids. ;-)

"So you see, DJing is very much like making love to a beautiful woman..."

Cracking article! Makes me wish smallclanger was big enough to hold a pen... he howled non-stop through Paranoid Android this afternoon though, so I don't think he's ready for them just yet.

Speaking of really good mix CDs, you need to give me a maildrop. I got something for you. Got something for Lorna and archie, too... but I don't know where any of y'all are at, now.

Off topic, but...
Since you belong to various groups and such within the Oxford area, thought I'd ask you? I'm trying to find a writers group of similar minded people, and just wondered if you'd heard of such a thing that you'd be able to recommend?

Any info, gratefully received... :)

Being a DJ and a loverman ...
10+i: There are people who are so much better at it than you, that you wonder why you bother. But, there are people who are so much worse at it than you that you wonder how they manage it.

10+i+1: Although variety and the introduction of new stuff is important, it's vital to throw a few classic crowd-pleasers in to really deliver the goods.

10+i+2: Once they're enjoying it, it's easier to keep them enjoying it.

10+i+3: It's been waaay too long since i did it - when's the next Panic?

I suspect one could do this all day.
